As it turned out, Bernsteinand Paster contacted Howell after she had reached out to Garden State Equality,a statewide LGBTQ advocacy and education organization. The recent Decemberinterview with the couple was conducted at the MCHA-owned CovenhovenHouse in Freehold. Although the 1738 Dutch colonial-style home was chosen forits privacy, the setting made for a nice contrast with the 21stcentury Monmouth County zeitgeist Bernstein and Paster represent. Futureinterviews will be conducted at MCHA headquarters or other locations convenientto participants. This article originally appeared in the Jan. 9, 2020 print edition of The Two River Times. The project got underway Dec. 23 when its originators, MCHAcolleagues Dana Howell and Joe Zemla, sat down to speak with Harriet Bernsteinand Luisa Paster to record the married couple’s story of their successful 2008lawsuit against the Ocean Grove Camp Meeting Association. Bernstein and Pasterhad been denied permission to get married in a civil union ceremony at the Methodistcommunity’s boardwalk gazebo. A New Jersey judge ruled against the Methodistorganization. The long-range plan for the MCHAoral history project is to include a wide variety of groups, interviewed inphases, such as the long-established African American community, the morerecently arrived Hispanic community, senior citizens and the Jewish community,especially for stories their grandparents have passed down from World War II.Others on the wish list are military veterans and survivors and families ofvictims of the 9/11 terrorist attack of the Twin Towers who will be visitingNew York for the 20th anniversary next year. The idea for the oral history project began six months ago whenHowell, a research librarian atthe MCHA, was intrigued by the concept during one of her archivistcertification classes. “We realized there was a deficit in our holdings thatneeded to be addressed, namely the lack of more culturally diverse stories,”she said. “The MCHA has a treasure trove of historic gems spanning severalcenturies of history. We just thought it was time to broaden the cultural scopeto make our offerings more relevant to a wider audience.” The two MCHA staffers are hopingto do one recorded interview per month. Now that the project has started, Zemlabelieves “it will become self-sustaining after a while” as people come forwardwith interesting accounts of events in their lives. These will be cataloguedand added to the organization’s 70 Court St. library in Freehold, andeventually posted on the MCHA’s website. By Rick Geffken Howell said they are open toideas. “We’ll continue to record stories from all the previous groups as wemove through each phase. After that, we’ll continue the program to includepretty much anyone who has an interesting story to tell.” “We knew we were going to have to be very proactive to accomplishour goal of diversification,” Howell explained. “Often we’ll get calls aboutdonations that start with, ‘I don’t know if this is old enough for you guys,but…’ ” The four-channel video recordertechnology used for the interviews is unassuming, which encourages candor fromthe interviewees. The interviewers themselves have an informal conversationalstyle which puts participants at ease right away. She began brainstorming the idea with Zemla, an associate curatorat the Freehold-based organization. He did a quick survey of the MCHA holdings.“We’re obviously strong in 18th and 19th centurycollections but lacking in others,” he said. The timing of the oral historyproject fit nicely with the MCHA’s new strategic plans for renewing its missionto preserve and celebrate the history of Monmouth County for everyone.President Linda Bricker enthusiastically endorses the idea. “This project fitsthat objective so well,” she said. Monmouth County history is more than a collection of dusty old books, tattered letters and fading black and white photographs sitting in boxes or stacked on shelves. A new oral history project by the Monmouth County Historical Association (MCHA) aims to show that the lives of people and events happening to all of us today are worth preserving for future historians. An oral history project has begun in Monmouth County. From left: Harriet Bernstein and Luisa Paster were interviewed by Joe Zemla and Dana Howell of the Monmouth County Historical Association.

… The Sharks’ first goal of the postseason came in unusual fashion Wednesday night.Captain Joe Pavelski slid into his customary spot in front of Knights goalie Marc-Andre Fleury, hunting for a tip-in goal on the Sharks power play.His chance came just under 15 minutes into the game, and he took it on the chin.He redirected a wrist shot from Brent Burns at the right point off his face and into the net, giving San Jose a 1-0 lead in Game 1 of their series against the Vegas Golden Knights.
8 May 2009Buying tickets for the 2009 Fifa Confederations Cup just got easier with the opening of four special ticketing centres enabling fans to get their tickets over the counter.With the 14 June kick-off of the eight-nation “Festival of Continental Champions” drawing near, Fifa has opened special ticketing centres in all four Confederations Cup host cities.Main Ticketing Centre at Sandton Isle, corner Rivonia Road and Linden Street, Sandown, Johannesburg. Mangaung/Bloemfointein Venue Ticketing Centre at Lochlogan Waterfront Mall, corner Charles and 1st Avenue, Bloemfontein. Rustenburg Venue Ticketing Centre at the Waterfront Mall, 1 Augrabies Avenue, Rustenburg. Tshwane/Pretoria Venue Ticketing Centre at Brooklyn Mall, corner Middel and Fehrsen Street, New Muckleneuk, Pretoria. Soccer fans will no longer have to fill out application forms when buying tickets for the World Cup warm-up tournament – they will only need their identity documents.Within 24 hours of all four ticketing centres opening on Monday, about 18 000 more tickets were sold – a clear indication that interest and excitement around the event was growing in the country.Fifa said on Tuesday that about 340 000 Confederations Cup tickets have been sold, leaving roughly 300 000 tickets still available.2010 Local Organising Committee chief executive Danny Jordaan said he believed that South Africans were realising that the Confederations Cup might be their only chance of watching some of the best players in the world live in their own back yard.“The indications we are getting from the sales of the Fifa World Cup next year is that it will be over-subscribed, and that means that many South Africans are likely to miss out,” Jordaan said.“That is why it becomes vital for them to go out and purchase a Fifa Confederations Cup ticket. South Africans are very passionate people, and we hope that by simplifying the process there’s now no stopping them from filling the stadiums.”SAinfo reporter and BuaNewsWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

10 July 2013 The Mandela Day container library project, an innovative response to the shortage of libaries at South African schools, will celebrate Nelson Mandela month with the handover of its 28th library – a custom-adapted 12-metre shipping container – to Alpine Primary School in Mitchells Plain, Cape Town. The 28th Mandela Day container library went on public display at Cape Town’s V&A Waterfront at an event marking the launch of Mandela month on 1 July, and will remain on display through 18 July, Mandela’s 95th birthday as well as Nelson Mandela International Day. Marked across the world on 18 July each year, Mandela Day aims to inspire people to take action to change the world for the better and, in doing so, to build a global movement for good. “The public is invited to view the library, get involved in activities within and around the library, such as writing their messages of hope on the 67 minutes wall of hope, painting the external wall of the container, reading to school learners and donating books,” Puleng Phooko, programmes manager for Breadline Africa, said at launch event at the V&A Waterfront’s Clock Tower square. Breadline Africa is one of a number of NGOs and corporates that have partnered with the Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory to drive the container library project, with corporates providing financial support, sponsorship of books and employee volunteers, and literacy organisations, book donation agencies and publishers providing books, educational equipment and materials. “The installation of Mandela Day libraries continues to spread the Mandela Day message about people’s capacity, when working together, to bring about positive change,” the Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory says on its website. “The libraries promote a reading culture and address the call for equal access to resources for education.” According to Phooko, the project, inspired by Mandela’s own love of reading and belief in the transformative power of education, can only be successful through the joint efforts of partners willing to make positive changes in children’s lives. The first Mandela Day container library was opened on 18 July 2011 at Tsakane Primary School on the East Rand in Gauteng province, and since then a further 26 have opened, covering deserving underprivileged schools in urban and rural areas countrywide and collectively touching the lives of over 20 000 pupils. Alpine Primary School in Mitchells Plain, which will receive the 28th library later this month, currently has no library for its 1 370 pupils. To ensure the sustainability of the project, the Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory, with support from LegalWise, Macmillan South Africa and other partners, hosted librarian training sessions in Johannesburg and Cape Town in October for teachers who run the libraries in recipient schools. Last month, the centre hosted a networking event bringing together “the companies that sponsor libraries, publishers and booksellers, architects and engineers who help design the libraries, and non-profit organisations that make the libraries a functional reality for learners and educators”. Tim Smith, director of Breadline Africa, appealed to corporates in South Africa and abroad to get involved in taking the project forward. Also speaking at the event, Kimberly van Dyk, CSI manager at JPMorgan Chase Bank, spoke of the bank’s sponsorship of a library, saying it was well received by people working at the bank, especially at its New York headquarters. Florina Tshikane, principal of Meadowlands Primary School in Soweto, spoke of the her pupils’ excitement about their container library, which opened in August. “They are so enthusiastic about the library,” she said. “They rush to library during break time.” SAinfo reporter

The Eternal FlameTucked deep within Chestnut Ridge Park, the Eternal Flame Falls EarthCache (GC10VMY) is a natural phenomenon – a natural gas leak underneath a waterfall that just happens to be burning.Thanks to Eric and Joe, a.k.a Szuchie and TWU, the natural gas leak under the waterfall is also a difficulty 1, terrain 3 EarthCache located in Western New York that geocachers can explore.The flame under the cascade of water embodies the spirit of nature that gives the spot an almost sacred feel. It is said that the combination of the falls and the natural gas leak is the only one of its kind on the planet, giving geocachers all the more reason to embark on an adventure to witness nature at its best.Szuchie and TWU’s inspiration for an EarthCache at this location was simply due to their amazement by what they saw when they first visited the park. Szuchie says, “From a caching standpoint – you don’t get too many things more fantastic than this.”According to the cache page, ‘upon entering the gorge and approaching the base of Eternal Flame Falls, cachers will notice a change in the ambient aroma.’ That aroma is methane, the natural gas that leaks from the cave, which lies at the base of the waterfalls. The natural gas can be lit to produce the flame.Hike up to the EarthCache siteThe 403 geocachers who logged a “Found it” have shared over 500 incredible images and written the most elaborate logs about their experience.One geocacher writes, “Wow – what an exceptional place and phenomenon. The Eternal Flame Falls came on my radar when I started checking caches by favorite points and I knew I really wanted to see this. Today was the day since LCSM and I were in the Buffalo area for the Cache-a-Day Challenge Finale. We continued here for our second goal of the day and it did not disappoint. Although the trail is well marked, we missed a turn (when we were distracted by another cache) and ended up on the Orange Trail which took us above the flame where we could see it but not reach it. We circled around, consulted the map at the kiosk, and redirected ourselves for the appropriate approach. I was especially delighted that there was still some water here in the falls despite the dry summer, as it is really the fire and water combination that is mesmerizing. Took our photos and observations, and headed back along the beautiful creek bed. Many thanks for this exceptional EarthCache – I guess there really is natural gas here in NYS! Brought a BBQ lighter but did not need to use it as the flames were already flickering away.”Continue to explore some of the most engaging geocaches around the globe.

Dora Siliya, the Minister of Education for the African country of Zambia, and the spokesperson for the ruling Movement for Multiparty Democracy, has turned to her Facebook page to make national policy announcements. This isn’t the first time an African leader has used Facebook to reach out to his or her citizens. Nigeria’s interim president, Goodluck Jonathan, used the social networking service to announce his run for the presidency. Palestinian prime minister, Salam Fayyad, has also availed himself of the outreach capacities of the popular site, using his account to crowdsource a new cabinet. Siliya, a graduate of the University of Zambia and of Cambridge University in the U.K, posts mostly about educational issues, soliciting ideas and opinions from her people about large issues and about specific decisions. One such decision was that to increase access the country’s safety-net schooling program, the APU. The announcement inspired 50 comments on that post alone, split between critics and boosters of the decision. The minister is fast approaching the 5,000 friend cut-off limit that Facebook enforces. (As of this writing he’s within 42 friends of reaching that point.) Given the average circulation for the country’s main newspapers of about 10,000, this is a large reach.The role that social media is playing in opening channels for conversation between public servants and the public they serve is undeniable, and Facebook, being the largest social media network, is taking a lead. In many ways, that is heartening. But given Facebook’s checkered history regarding user privacy, and its persistent opposition to anonymity, the trend should not be welcomed uncritically.
